Dr Geoffrey Edwards, the Deputy Director of the European Centre, receives the 2015 UACES Lifetime Achievement Award

last modified Sep 04, 2015 09:04 PM

We would like to congratulate Dr Geoffrey Edwards, the Deputy Director of the European Centre, for the 2015 UACES Lifetime Achievement Award. The award will be presented to Dr Edwards at the UACES Annual Conference in Bilbao taking place on 7-9 September 2015. The UACES (The Academic Association for Contemporary European Studies) was established in England and Wales in 1969 and became one of the most prestigious associations in the field of European Studies in the UK and Europe. The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to individuals who made a substantial contribution to the development of European Studies as a discipline.

On this occasion, Professor Christopher Hill, University of Cambridge, commented on Dr Edwards’ work: “Geoffrey Edwards has been one of the most dedicated and expert British scholars in the area of European Studies for four decades. He is immensely knowledgeable and wide-ranging, having published in most areas of EU activity and has inspired generations of students to follow in his path. He is undoubtedly one of the most skilled and well-loved doctoral supervisors I have encountered, with a pan-European network of young researchers who have benefited from his wise and sympathetic schooling'.
